How to make a server public

Hi, is there any way for me to make my server not show up in searches while still having the banners available?

Edit: The title was wrong, it was supposed to say "how to make a server private"

Hello,

Unfortunately there is no feature to do that at this time.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.

In that case, is there a way to avoid showing the IP publicly?

Hello,

No, there is not a feature to hide the IP either. However, if you are concerned about the security of the server, hiding the IP would not do a whole lot. It would not be too difficult to find the IP address, especially if someone can connect to it.

While I am not too familiar with Minecraft servers, I believe the Whitelist would be a good option (as I do not believe passwords are supported, but you may be able to find some plugin for that). That way, only certain players could join.
